A quality MIDI keyboard, but unusable with SampleTank piano and Korg Module iOS

Loïc9907, 22.05.2017
First things that are angry, especially pianists. Even a pianist does not expect a piano touch on a MIDI keyboard, in addition to this (modest) price.
But I who use the Graphite 49 only with iOS apps, is perfect for synths, organs, strings and brass (at least for me), but as a (mediocre) pianist of formation, impossible to find a setting of Velocity correct for pianos (Korg Module, iPiano Grand). By adjusting the velocity curve in Graphite (many curves including more unusual shapes), or in the app, the result is the same: high level without any nuance, or volume too low without any nuance (the velocity level N reached the maximum of 127). You will tell me, but what will he do in this galley? Just look at a diagram of the mechanics of an acoustic piano or the Kawai MP11 to understand that one will never get the same touch with a plastic hose to 150? Or even 400? Whose keys are mounted on springs.
I answer, yes, but no, because the Keybed of the "Novation Remote SL MK 2" comes to produce some shades of piano.

It is true that even the good keyboard of the "Novation Remote" is not really satisfactory on iOS pianos either. While for example the mid-range Keybed, with the equivalent touch, that equips the Roland FA 06, produces acceptable piano shades (but it's a synth, I only have to try the Roland FA as a MIDI keyboard ).

Maybe the touch is correct with a piano plugin on computer. I did not try.

So is this the fault of iOS apps? But what are the police doing ?

The MIDI Graphite 40 keyboard is surprisingly good for its moderate price compared to other brands (128 at the beginning of 2017 at Toto, then 148? ... 155? With the bag !!!! knowing that the Black and Silver models have exactly the same specifications). Do not confuse it with Carbon 49, also from Samson.

In a compact size, you get a clear and pleasant synthetic touch with velocity and Aftertouch (which "squeaks" hardly, but not totally silent), and many controllers including 4 physical pads (8 pads effective thanks to instantaneous switching Between two banks).

The construction is obviously all plastic, but of very correct form (no flexion of the body nor play in the controllers, which are both frank and progressive.

The monochrome screen displays many parameters and allows you to load one of the 30 internal controller assignment presets (1 universal, 15 for the most common DAWs and 14 "User" presets) , And even allows you to define the "Users" presets without a computer.

A software editor (PC and Mac) allows to define the MIDI mapping in the "User" presets, and to store them in a file, as well as to update the Graphite firmware.

The graphite can be powered by the USB port, and it has a plug for the optional power adapter. A flexible bag dedicated to Graphite 49 is also available as an option.

The use is not particularly intuitive, and the manual does not help much. So my aide-mémoire in the AF media section tries to fill the gap.

Plus: price, compactness, but full functionality, a nice touch (with iOS application except pianos), good construction and a sober and efficient look.

Minus: Not working with iOS pianos, despite velocity curve options; Or give me the solution ... Please
